Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift Win Big at Country Music Awards
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert
It was a busy evening for country star Blake Shelton at Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards. Not only did The Voice coach serve as the show's co-host alongside Reba McEntire, but he also took home the award for best male vocalist.
Shelton's wife, country singer Miranda Lambert, scored two trophies herself: best female vocalist and album of the year for "Four the Record."

The evening's top honor, entertainer of the year, went to Taylor Swift for the second year in a row.
"I am so amazed that the fans keep doing such incredibly nice things for me," Swift told reporters backstage. "I just want to hug them all the time and thank them for everything — it really blows my mind,"
Sunday's show also played host to a first for any awards show ceremony: A couple was married, live on stage, while Martina McBride and Pat Monahan sang a duet of "Marry Me." McBride personally selected the couple, New Jersey residents Christina Davison and Frank Tucci, who met while grieving their respective late first spouses.
